SOUTH HAVEN (WKZO) -- Timing is everything in life and in crime.
A man walking on Water Street in South Haven just before noon on Sunday was confronted by a robber who implied he had a gun and threatened to shoot the victim in the head if he didn’t hand over his cash.
The victim simply waved down a police officer who was driving near by.
The South Haven officer was able to quickly locate and arrest the suspect without incident.
The suspect, a 23-year-old from Muskegon was already being sought for auto theft in his home county.
He is being held without bond in the Van Buren County Jail.
